Introduction: Coconut Almond Caramel Cookies

About: Cooking and more!

I cannot describe it in words, its like love. With the first bite my heart goes "mmmmmm". I don't bake cookies much, but whenever I do, I always make these cookies. These cookies are super easy to make, requires very less time and can be made with few ingredients. My family loves these cookies even more than the basic Choco chip one.

    Looks so Yummy, do try Cashew and Raisin topping, i guess it would add a little bit of sour texture to it.
    Good work!
